I can't even do the Step 1.. How can you paint a sketch when you used to draw it ? TT

:icontyleredlinart:
TylerEdlinArt Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
step one is i just take a thicker brush with lower opacity maybe like 40% and sketch him out. once I have a bunch of blobs of paint down with the shape of him, i go back with a thintip brush and draw in the details. then paint over those.

For sure! I will make an attempt doing my own Link, and I will let you know when I have that up so you can see what I learned from you. Not sure when that will happen in my schedule. Been forever since I posted anything, but I will try and let you know. I had a crazy idea of taking Link out of his realm and painting him as a Gladiator in an arena. May be too confusing or far stretched to pull off, but we will see.

I'm always a fan of tutorials, specifically when it comes to photoshop or just making one's art look more impressive. I find it very helpful. :D

Interesting to see how different style wise his face looks in the stages! Personally I really liked the angle in the very first one and then suddenly he starts to look more masculine and older... only to go to something in-between the two.

:icontyleredlinart:
TylerEdlinArt Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
yeah I like the angle of the original sketch better, just slowly got derailed from it. and then i always intentionally go older on his face form nintendos, just cause i like to

Fantastic tips. It seems like this art style would really work if Nintendo made a modern Link to the Past with the grit and weight of the image.

i'm curious about something, did you use Illustrator to paint him? I'm curious to know because i'm taking a college class where we're learning the lasics of using Photoshop and Illustrator

its all photoshop, though illustrator is used to make vector based pictures its no painting tool.

Have you tried working in color from the very start? Maybe it would be more dynamic?

:icontyleredlinart:
TylerEdlinArt Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
i do on and off all the time. Basically when i start b+w its my basic sketch phase. It is quicker for me in most cases to sketch in b+w than in color. AS you can see though ass soon as I generally know whats going on I jump to color asap.

Nice! Although I feel that it added more drama when Link's face was facing the viewer
